O ISRAEL

O Israel Salvation's come
Behold the King of Glory
Born as a babe in Bethlehem
Thorn Crowned King of Calvary
Angel's rejoiced that blessed day
To bring those shepherds tidings
As they watched their flocks by night
While in those fields abiding

And O what joy emitted from
The shepherds heart's that day
For heaven opened a fount of blessing
To bring to them alway
And Christ the Lord blessed Bethlehem
The Creator humbled became
Virgin born sinless man
Jesus Christ His name

Hallelujah's still ring out
O bless that dying Lamb
Now Resurrection and our Life
Because He rose again
Let every heart prepare a place
In the which for Him to indwell
God with us O praise His name
Jesus Christ...Immanuel!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
